Soul Coaching is a holistic process. It harkens back to the “old-school” way of philosophy: a partnership between Teacher & Student along the noble path.
Being in the Way will change your whole life. As it’s values of wisdom, virtue, and ardency draw our hearts toward itself, we become more in its likeness: becoming all we were meant to be. Practicing life in the Way is not something esoteric, abstract, and unfamiliar. Rather, the Way uses ordinary things: fellowship, rest, study, and accountability to accomplish great things in a person. The mystery comes in forming a real connection with it, unlocking its spiritual reality in our daily lives.
Read on to learn about steps you can take to rest in the Way on your own, as well as a breakdown of what Soul Coaching can bring to your life.
“Nobility is a two-edged sword.
It draws love from the good
but wrath from the scornful.
It is a kind of grace.
Like grace, it offends the vile…
but inspires the great.”
— Heart of the Phoenix (2021)
There are many paths, but only one Way. If the path you walk is sure, it will lead you through the gate where there is life. Where have your feet found you today? Maybe taking a quick moment of introspection is all you need.
Maybe you are seeking the complete experience: if your live in San Diego, check out CrossSwords Combat Academy (the parent school of SharpenYourSoul.com) and begin the path of knighthood. But maybe you’re long distance: read something fun to lift your spirits! Check out these buttons for a redirection to some free science fiction stories, or to read some thought provoking poetry filled with teachings of the Way.
But… maybe you don’t know where to begin and simply know you need something. Maybe that’s where we come in. Hit ‘Start Now‘ to reach out and take the first steps toward growth and a whole new frame of mind. Soul Coaching entails a complete and holistic revitalization of the individual.
The most intensive element of Soul Coaching, Spiritual Counseling involves LOOKING BACK and diving deep into the Cognitions (beliefs), Affects (feelings), and Behaviors of the individual. Together, these comprise the Spirit of a person. The client and the coach then examine these closely for areas of dissonance, previously unnoticed. By careful teamwork, these domains are brought into accord, and tempered for a sense of clarity, peace, and harmony.
Mindfulness training involves centering the self within the present moment and LOOKING NOW. By systematically cleansing clutter from one’s awareness, the coach and client work through disciplines of meditation, which allow the individual to more fully experience their lives. No matter what path an individual walks through life in, mindfulness training equips them with the self-mastery to see clearly, to choose wisely, and to live well.
This wing of Soul Coaching is where the coach and client are LOOKING FORWARD. Life Coaching works to make tactile steps toward the kind of future the client wants for themselves. Through setting goals and accountability, this is a step by small-step process. Whether for job & career, relationships & family, or other personal pursuits, the sense of purpose that comes from goal-oriented responsibility empowers the individual to reset their lives.
